Charlie's Bird

living the dream with Charlie and Thandi and chirping all the way back to the nest.

Crazy and quiet

…this was a weekend of contrasts – moments of such peace and quiet – awesome – to moments of pure blind terror and chaos! It was insane! By last night I was feeling a bit odd!

Friday had been a lovely quiet youth day. Saturday Morning was the busiest time on call that I have had for a long while (preterm twin caesar delivery; an emergency caesar for feral distress to discover a mother bleeding out, a horrible miscarriage)! Sunday started well, and then ended with some drama with a planned home birth being brought to hospital, only to have her deliver in the parking lot, to everyone’s consternation!

The rest of the weekend was nice – had some good family time with my daughter – shopping for Father’s day gifts for Charlie and Pops; playing monopoly on a cold Sunday afternoon; preparing a roast dinner for Sunday lunch for the Dads. She is such a sweetie pie – we are having the best time with her at the moment. So interactive, so kind, so sweet, so intuitive.

Wow, being on call sounded hectic.
She is at a lovely age
Salivating at the thought of a Sunday roast, yum

Flip what a Saturday on call, your job really has the super highs and the lowest of lows. Home births always freak me out….. what’s wrong with just going to hospital and doing it there! We had homebirth suite in the one hospital I worked at and that to me was a safer option with technology right there if needed..Sounds like you had a lovely Father’s Day
